Killer Criminal Cop in Oakland Invokes "Nuremberg Defense" — Gets Reinstated posted 08/01/2014, 2:05 PM (William Norman Grigg)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
After Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen was struck in the head by a lead-lined beanbag round during an October 25 protest in Oakland, Officer Robert Roche fired a CS tear-gas canister into a crowd of people who had gathered to help him. This act of self-indulgent sadism is hardly out of what passes for Roche's character: As a SWAT operative, Roche has been involved in three fatal shootings, and has posted a photograph boasting of his accomplishments as a killer.

"That's the last thing many of the more observant people I've `met' have ever seen," gloated a caption Roche composed for a photograph of himself in a prone sniper's position. "Consider yourself fortunate."

In response to public outrage over Roche's criminal actions during the October 25, 2011 incident, the Oakland PD fired the officer. Last March, the city hit up the tax victims within its jurisdiction to underwrite a $4.5 million settlement with Olsen. The following month, Roche filed for arbitration to get his job back. He has now been reinstated on the force, and his attorney says that he will resume his occupation as a state-licensed killer "with all enthusiasm, with all alacrity."

Roche was placed on paid vacation prior to his termination. He will receive two years' back pay once he rejoins the force.

There is no dispute that Roche's assault was "unreasonable" and illegal. However, in arbitration proceedings Roche successfully used the "Nuremberg Defense," insisting (in the words of a
